Sunday Brunch: Vegetarian Brunch Casserole Recipe

Day 23.

I found this recipe over at Kelly the Kitchen Kop's site, here. It sounds super yummy and easy to freeze, which is excellent for our toddler. My husband is responsible for breakfasts, and he's not a morning person. So, frozen breakfasts are a great substitute for her usual bagel or can of fruit.

Judy’s Breakfast Casserole
1 tsp. salt
7 C shredded potatoes
1 onion shredded
1/3 C butter melted and tossed with the potatoes

Mix together and press into large glass baking dish and bake at 425F for 1/2 hour.

Meanwhile prepare:
2 lb. "sausage" (I used Gimme Lean, sausage style) fried and crumbled and set aside
4 C shredded cheese

12 eggs (3 C)
3 C milk
1/4 tsp. pepper

When potatoes are baked, sprinkle on the sausage and cheese, and then pour liquid mixture over everything. Squish your fingertips down into the bottom of the baking dish several places and then bake at 350F for about 30 minutes. 

The Results
I should've known better after finding the sausage bars too sausagey, this was the same way. I questioned it when I went to split the recipe in half and realized I would still be using a full tube of sausage in an 8 x 8 pan. Way too sausagey for me. I'd suggest halving the sausage amount, but my meat-eating husband loved it. So, you'll have to decide whether you're a sausagey family or an eggy-cheese family. I guess we're of mixed sausage persuasion.

What's on you table for Sunday Brunch?
